You could try a seating position which reduces the weight on that area, by tilting the seat back a bit and raising the front of the seat swab so as to support the underside of the thighs more. If you are tall consider also adjusting the seat base forward. Vogue seats are a bit firmer than SE/AB as they don't have semi-aniline leather, but they should still be comfortable on long journeys if the seat is set up right for you. Only Range Rovers since 1988

That Wallet is now empty Stan!!! lol

Funny never thought about the difference in seats. I'm only 5'7" so not that tall but will have a play with the lumbar as I was wondering if something there was adrift!

I do seem to have this very firm "point" in both seats tho as if its meant to be like that!!

Deffo painful in some respects!! all smug in my new plug!

In most cars the seats need a bit of lumbar but in this one I’ve got it wound right back. I found moving it to the lowest position and then fully back stopped me feeling it in the lower seat back. As has been said, try changing the seat tilt and backrest angle. Part of the problem is there is so much adjustment, it’s easy to get it not quite right. MY19 SDV8 Autobiography

Then you get it just right, forget to save the setting then the long haired general flounces in, changes it about and your back to square 1. Rolling with laughter Mr. Green

I’ve got memory 1 and 2 set up for me, just in case someone changes it…..but it’s more for when it’s in the dealership as we’ve had memory seats on both bars for long enough for there not to be any overwriting! MY19 SDV8 Autobiography

I’ve done some pretty epic long journeys and no bum pain from the fatty. I’d fiddle with the base seat angle and such. Or get a new coccyx. Land Rover probably sell them branded for double. L405 P400e Autobiography (MY2020)... Silicon Silver / Espresso

Hi. I have found that if I have the seat swab adjusted to far forwards it exposes part of the seat base structure between the base and seat back and you end up sitting on it.

Try adjusting the seat swab so it’s as far back as it goes moving the seat structure back under the seat back and allowing you to sit on the comfy bit. try this for a few days.

As above. I found the same, but adjusting the seat base rearwards (despite being 6ft2) has helped hugely with numb-bum!

I can last about an hour and half then my rear becomes numb. Oddly, never had this issue in the 322 I owned.

I just returned from a 2000 mile European road trip, with in-car hours extended by insane Eurotunnel waiting times, and I can safely say my derrière was the least of my worries. Positively pampered, really. Here it is in action in Zurich. I cannot, however, recommend my dietician.

for me, tilting the seat base back made a big difference. It pushes nicely on my thighs with less pressure on lower back.

I got rid of my 2016/66 Autobiography solely because I found the seats very uncomfortable on long journeys.

I did however find the 2018 MY onwards seats much better. Maybe just keep adjusting it and storing a couple of comfortable options in the memory settings
